  1. Hi! So Rachel based on your recent work what do you think is the best early intervention model for attenuated psychosis / chr youth ? CBT , family focused therapy?

  2. I’ve been hearing a lot about PANDAS triggered by strep. As a parent, that is very scary. That may be a different conversation but wondering if there is a possible connection?

  3. What is going on in the brain with full blown psychosis/schizophrenia? What causes it to progress? Is it reversible or does one need to be on medication all their lives? How do parents help when their son refuses therapy and medication?

  4. Hello everyone,

    Welcome! Thanks for your questions during the webcast. Please leave additional questions about early psychosis here and I’ll do my best to answer them within 24 hours.

  5. Comments are now closed. Big thanks to Carrie, Carmen, Barbara, Marianne, Cindy, Sabrina, and of course, Dr. Rachel Loewy for your awesome participation! -Brandon
